    Good stuff. I like to see fighters being able to make an income for themselves after retirement. So many boxers go broke so soon after retiring.

    Yes, 100% deserved. I really feel like going in on you here but I made a decision to be polite and respectful to everyone on here a while back.

    Look, it is capitalism and it is a free market economy. Any business man or woman will always do whatever it takes to maximise their earnings. If you can get paid millions.... then so be it. Floyd and Pac-Man have paid their dues to boxing, both are ATG's and are legends in the game. What should they do now? Stop all forms of income and solely rely on previous earnings and hope they die before it runs out? They have a right to work and earn just as any other man does. Personally, I am happy for both.

    The hypocrisy and double standards of people complaining about what PBF is doing now stinks to high heaven.

    Nobody on this forum would pass up on legally earning millions for hardly breaking a sweat. He had a long career, putting his health on the line every time he stepped in the ring. He deserves every penny.

    Another 5 million for Floyd to beat up a little Chinese dude. Nice!

    Floyd has clearly been very irresponsible with his money and will look to market this as if it was a real fight taking attention away from the actual sport and directing it towards another farce.

    That Floyd and Manny don't seem to have been able to make the 100s of millions they've earned last a lifetime isn't my concern. The sport has given them everything they could of ever dreamed of and then some.

    Well, he's a gentleman, I'm sure he offered to get his friend Lenny to give you his famous bj, which has a street value of £150. If you were savvy you'd have taken it, basically netted yourself 25 quid worth of sloppy toppy.

    To fight and to box an exhibition bout are two different things...
